Curated big-idea conversations by the best talkers we know.


What's What is a series of curated conversations. People nominate the best conversationalists amongst their friends and acquaintances, and we select a few of the nominees to serve as radio host for the day. The host takes a burning question they've had on their mind and hashes it out with somebody who's a provocative talker on the subject. For example:

- How much Do-It-Yourself (DIY) is too much DIY?
- How do you balance forgiveness with holding people responsible?
- What kills creativity?
